Mr. Kirk, you said that among the many fatherly duties that you assumed when Claudia entered your life was bathing her. Do you remember saying that?

Yes, the multi-talented Richard Dreyfuss makes a great lawyer.
There's something about him that just kicks everything he does into high gear - even if it's a crappy movie in general.
He's gone that sparkle that not many others have.
He's got more sparkle than Al Pacino and De Niro.
If I were to go on trial for a serious crime, I would want Richard Dreyfuss backing me up...
The movie was OK, I don't think she was nuts from the very opening scene, not any of the rest of the movie made me think she was nuts - so why would anybody else think she was nuts? I guess because it needed a title and every other court room title was taken.
Anyways, it's a decent movie - nothing too exuberant and nothing award winning, but the roles for most actors were pretty darn good and because of Richard's screen charisma, it get's a 7.
